Spend a morning plying The Pacific Rim's inshore waters or middle banks. Depending on conditions, timing, expected productivity, and group preference, this trip offers options:  Fish along the coastline and amongst the islands for Salmon, Ling, and Rockfish, or troll the inner banks targeting Chinook and a chance at Halibut. This charter allows you to travel further when beneficial and spends significantly more time with the rods in the water than on the afternoon trip. 

Afternoon

Our four-hour afternoon trips are a great introduction to the Salmon fishery of the inshore waters surrounding the Pacific Rim. Migratory runs of Chinook Salmon (King Salmon) and Coho Salmon both stop to feed along our coastline and through the Broken Group Islands. Drawn to the rugged underwater structure off the islands, Lingcod is a lesser-known crowd favourite to catch and delicious.

Soak in a mirage of sea life while you await your first big bite. Chomp Chomp, who's up to bat?
